Thank you. I like this one a lot because unlike some of my paintings, it looks nice and professional. I didn't do any crazy bgs or anything that looks not up to par with the pet (i have a little trouble with BGs but the only way to improve is to keep practicing so I try and include them in most paintings nayhow and hope tey'll catch up to my pet skills soon)
Absolutely beautiful! It looks like a young husky pup, possibly 6 months. I love the style of the eyes and you have a great talent for the mouth and nose. He looks digital, which program(s) do you use??
Gosh I got them years ago. They came from someone here on dA brushes made for photoshop seven. Fur brushes won't save you from painting individual fur strands cause you do need to do some yourself to make it look natural. But they do well for undercoats and giving depth/volume. Then you add hairs as you like to make it realistic.
